My friend and I didn't realise that this hostel was a fair bit away from the city centre when we booked it, until we had to get a metro and then a bus to it. Although it was quite a while away from the city centre, it's in a really nice quiet area with beautiful views of the mountains and... More

Amazing breakfast and room service. The place is really clean and new and has a big and cute common kitchen. The receptionists were sympathetic and helpful. The location is good by metro. Furthermore is perfect for couples or two travellers, because private rooms are not so more expensive than shared ones. It was sure the better choice!

Slept here last night actually and had a okay stay. I think the rooms is a bit too small, especially the bathrooms, hard for a large guy as me to fit. The breakfast is great for hostels. And the wifi with good connection everywhere is very appreciated.

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice breakfast and good facilities. From Oslo central station (or Jernbanetorget), take Tram no.17 direction of Sinsen-Grefsen stasjon to Sinsenkrysset bus stop. When you get off from the Tram at Sinsenkrysset bus stop, the Youth hostel is on the hill behind Football field. Just follow a sign of Youth Hostel near the bus stop.. the... More

The title says it all - that's the main logo. It is a bit out of town - a 25 minute tram ride from the center, but in a quiet peaceful location and the buffet breakfast is a bonus in an expensive place like Norway

This is how a hostel should be run. It"s a little outside of the city (about 4km), but a lovely free ride by bike into the city (Oslo is like the Scandinavian San Francisco). The whole place is designed to make it as communal as possible. I loved the vibe in this place. The staff are very warm and helpful.... More

Close from the center of the city with the subway which is right below the hostel after the park (10 min, line 6) Stayed in the new building, the rooms are better than some hotels I went in! 70€ for a single room, you won't find a better price in this expensive city..

We are a family of six on a budget and therefore this hostel was the cheapest in Oslo. It was a bit out of town but the public transport made up for it- the tram and bus are extremely close and the metro within walking distance. Our room was on the small side but perfectly acceptable. The staff were extremely... More
